    The Good Girl’ revolves around Justine (Jennifer Aniston), who has been leading a very monotonous life. Justine is dissatisfied with her routine life and dead-end jobs. That’s when she notices her co-worker Holden (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is also experiencing an identical situation. Finally, the two connect passionately and begin an affair.

    Working in this movie with Aniston, Gyllenhaal said that he felt “awkward” while filming sex scenes and he described the whole experience as torture. “It was torture, yes it was, but it was also not torture. I mean, come on. It was like a mix of both,” the ‘Brokeback Mountain’ actor confessed on The Howard Stern Show.

    The whole awkwardness of the situation was because Jake Gyllenhaal had a huge crush on the ‘Friends’ actress Jennifer Aniston. This is what made the intimate scenes difficult to film.

    The ‘Prisoners’ actor also opened up about the way the two did their intimate scenes on the set. “Weirdly, love scenes are awkward because there are maybe 30, 50 people watching. That doesn’t turn me on. Most of the time, it’s oddly mechanical, right? And also it’s a dance, like, you choreograph it for a camera,” the 42-year-old explained his embarrassment.

    It’s one of those like a fight scene, you gotta choreograph those things and I always have tried,” he added. On Jennifer Aniston’s suggestion, the duo used a pillow in order to make their bedroom scenes more comfortable. This is how the intimate scenes with Aniston turned out to be a ‘torture’ for Gyllenhaal as he acted with his biggest crush.
